Hatch 7 Plus Finatic Fly Reel
What makes the 3 plus so good with it's smooth start up is the same things that makes the 7 plus so good. Startup is just as important for a Bonefish or Steelhead reel as it is a trout reel. We use alot of 10 and 12 pound tippet for Bonefish and it is crucial when a super charged Bonefish takes off, close to the boat in particular, its critical that the drag responseds and there is the rod doesn't bounce as the fish runs. Bag drag = rod bounce! We also fish heavier tippets for Bonefish on Grand Bahamas, a favorite placve for the staff at WCO. The biggest Bonefish in the western hemisphere are on Grand Bahamas and we fish tippets of 17 to 20 pounds for those bruisers. Grand Bahamas incendently also has the longest contoinuos mangrove lined flats in the world. So put GIANT Bonefish together with lots of mangroves and you will need a drag that can be tightened down and still respond to short bursts. You MUST crank down the drag and make a Bonefish work! It is close to impossible to do this with any other reel, they just don;t have the lockdown range on the drag like a Hatch. Ask our business partner and flats legend Greg Vincent, Hatch is what he goes to battle with everyday.
